No matter if you are a beginner or an expert, this pi-topPULSE smart speaker is a fun and educational project-based learning tool that allows you to learn, play, create and get started using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) projects with music, lights and sound.
The pi-topPULSE is a sleek, smart speaker that is designed for use as an add-on for the pi-top and pi-topCEED, and as a HAT for the Raspberry Pi 3. Makers, students and educators alike will be able to design and build many different projects, ranging from functioning as a high-end Raspberry Pi 3 speaker, a LED matrix for sound-based light shows, or even a customisable cloud-based voice service, with Amazon Alexa integration!
Featuring a built-in microphone that allows for Amazon's cloud-based voice service compatibility, which together with the built-in speaker allows you to ask questions and get information from the world wide web. Why not code your own games or create music and light shows.
